James Harden gives game ball to 100-year-old Rockets fan


A woman celebrating her 100th birthday sitting courtside in the Houston Rockets' NBA win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday received a special gift courtesy of James Harden.

The Rockets guard dropped 38 points as the Bucks were defeated 111-92 at Toyota Center, before delivering the game ball to the lucky birthday girl.

Harden then posed for photos with the woman to make her landmark birthday even more memorable.

"Well it's her 100th birthday, so it's a blessing," Harden said in an interview with ESPN.

"You know she's excited, she's sitting on the court. She kept smiling over there. I had to go give her the game ball and tell her how blessed she is and I am for meeting her."
